the water reaching this pier out on the beach. local authorities went door-to-door yesterday telling residents to get out. they say most of the residents did heed the warning as they have up and down the new jersey coast. this entire state is being threatened now. the governor made a very clear plea to anyone in low-lying areas, don't be stupid and get out for this reason. you see water now already coming up on the shore here. we saw it last night reaching, reaching the boardwalk. current is pretty strong and the winds gusting now to near 30 miles an hour. they're expecting the surge to be eight to 12 feet along the jersey shore which obviously would be well over our heads here. so we do have higher ground to retreat to. in the meantime we've seen some streets in point pleasant already underwater. we've seen at least one power line down already. the concern is as wind and rain comes in and heavy leaves on the trees, the trees come down, they bring undo power lines. people across the state could be without power for a week or more. all the public transit has been closed. hundreds of s

, including the associated press and local television stations. but the most outrageous comments were completely ignored, further proof that the mainstream media has been in the pocket of barack obama since he day he arrived on the national stage. let's take a look at what the left-wing press has been hiding since 2007. we begin with senator obama, repeatedly praising the reverend reverend jeremiah wright, who was in the crowd. keep in mind, by the time the speech was delivered in june of 2007, reverend wright was a known quantity in the world of politics, dis-invited to barack obama's campaign announceility, and appeared in "hannity" months earlier, as he attempted to defend his controversial views. by the way, his last appearance on tv during that campaign. yet, here's what then-senator obama said about him then. >> then i have to give a special shoutout to my pastor... the guy who puts up with me, counsels me, listens to my wife complain about me -- [chuckles] ... he's a friend and a great leader, not just in chicago but across the country. please, everybody, give an extraordinary

it up at your local news stand or the local airport. that's ahead on this thursday fox report. >>> the defense of marriage law is unconstitutional. that is the ruling from a federal appeals court in new york in a legal battle that is already headed to the u.s. supreme court. the law defines marriage as one between a man and a woman which means the federal government does not recognize same-sex marriages. an appeals court in boston has also ruled that law unconstitutional. legal experts say they expect the supreme court to hear the case within the next year. lab tests say there is a definite link between the meningitis outbreak and the pharmaceutical company that produced the sainted steroid shots. that's new today. it comes as research shows early detection of this disease. feds raided the massachusetts company the day before yesterday and today the centers for disease control and food and drug administration confirmed finding fungus in unopened vials of the medication. the cdc reports more than 250 infections across 16 states, the ones in yellow. new york has reported its fir

[you are ] >> no, no, governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. but what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing and restore security for hard-working americans. >> i'm just okay the president says in terms of debating, although i remember back in tpwaeut 2008 he did a pretty good job against hillary clinton. a pretty good job with john mccain. by the way, no sign of lindsay lohan here yet. jenna: where are the celebrities going to come in next. ed you're better than okay. back toed as news warrants in las vegas. i gregg: if she was there you would
